Shakespeare Puppets at Hamlets Castle 2014

7/1/2014 - 7/31/2014

King Lear Join the royals, when HamletScenen and Kronborg Castle breathe new and wonderful life into Shakespeare's immortal family drama, King Lear. Stun your senses in the company of tremendous puppets and two fabulous performers, the puppeteers Finn Rye and Lene Hummelshøj. A unique puppet theatre production created by the esteemed team of director, Jacques S. Matthiessen and designer/puppet maker, Rolf Søborg Hansen. The music has been composed by the virtuoso jazz saxophonist, Fredrik Lundin. So be prepared for an outstanding experience. Shakespeare's King Lear is a universal drama about inheritance and a mega-rich royal family. The King has turned old and it is now time to write his will. On one hand, he wants to divide his kingdom equally between his three beautiful princesses. On the other hand, he wants to keep his riches for himself. The King decides that the daughter, who can prove she loves him the most, will inherit the kingdom. In other words, there is a cake to be shared, and the temperature in the bakery is pretty high. The question is simple. How do you measure love? Should he choose the daughter, who clearly shows her love for him in the presence of others? Or the daughter, who shows her appreciation for him in considerate words and actions? Or maybe a totally different, third alternative? Invite your family and friends from near and far and enjoy an unforgettable ½-hour in the languageless universe of puppet theatre and in the magical setting of Kronborg Castle. Remember, you can also purchase group tickets: for example, to add a touch of cultural content to a child's birthday. Facts: Performers: Lene Hummelshøj and Finn Rye Director: Jacques S.

Shakespeare Festival at Hamlet´s Castle 2014

8/1/2014 - 8/10/2014

HamletScenen bids all cosmopolitans welcome at Kronborg Castle Experience magical summer evenings when the castle courtyard once again buzzes with international atmosphere this August. You are guaranteed world-class theatre when sublime actors vivaciously tread on stage. Exclusive entertainment with intimacy and intensity. Become a part of the special Kronborg atmosphere when intrigue, forbidden love, vanity, power, humour, hatred, revenge and provocations fill the castle courtyard. Shakespeare's Globe, Stockholm MusikTeater, Peter Brooke’s blockbuster King Lear, and Shakespeare in Concert can be experienced by audiences this year at the Shakespeare Festival at Hamlet's Castle from August 1-10, 2014. The festival opens with Shakespeare's Globe from London with their sparkling new production of Much Ado About Nothing. Everything is looking well for Hero and Claudio, who are to be married in a week. The lovers attempt to encourage the budding love between Benedick and Beatrice. However, the evil Don John is lurking in the background, planning to accuse Hero of infidelity. The intricacies and confusions quickly multiply and a chaotic jumble of theatrical games hastily plays out. Discover a string of England's best actors as they play, sing and dance in the courtyard, bringing life to one of the world’s most beloved popular comedies. Stockholm’s MusikTeater appear on stage with their humorous tour de force musical, "William” – an award-winner at the New York Fringe Festival in 2013. William Shakespeare is 28 and word has just started to spread about this playwright in London, who is quickly evolving from a mediocre writer to a literary genius. Taking its starting point in the year 1592, the performance tries to find the answer to a 400-year-old mystery - who was William Shakespeare? A fantastic musical performance that reveals much about Shakespeare and his time, delving into the famous 154 sonnets, written with his unbridled lust for life, his humour, passion for love, budding insanity, impotence and jealousy. Experience the talented Swedish actor and singer Jonas Nerbe in the company of a female string quartet consisting of two violins, one viola and a cello. Together, they brilliantly tell the tale of the world's most famous playwright, William Shakespeare. 2 This year's Open Air Cinema offers an exclusive showing of King Lear from 1971, filmed by the legendary British director Peter Brooke. An exciting Danish/English film collaboration, starring among others the Danish actors Anne- Lise Gabold and Søren Jensen Elung. The title role was played by the Oscar-winning British character actor Paul Scofield. Filming took place in Råbjerg Mile in northern Jutland. The film is presented in collaboration with CINEMATEKET/Danish Film Institute and CPH PIX. As a new initiative, Shakespeare in Concert is presented as a festive and musical conclusion to this year's festival. Frans Rasmussen will direct an explosive concert experience accompanied by the two fantastic singers, Signe Schreiber and Søren Launbjerg, who sing famous songs and sections from a classical and contemporary repertoire. Christian Eugen-Olsen is the master of ceremonies, and Greve Harmony Orchestra will accompany in musical collaboration with St. Olav Vocal Ensemble.
